    I have been working at Stryker (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great company with a lot of advancement as long as you drive it. Fast-paced culture with high-performers, if you like that culture, you will definitely enjoy Stryker. It is fun and the company cares a lot about its people, which is nice since Stryker is so big. It is a culture where people want to do their best every day to help change a patients life.

    Cons

    Sometimes the work-life balace but with a great manager, it works out.

    I have been working at Stryker full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Still some good coworkers not much more to say about the pros

    Cons

    No respect for senior workers they take advantage of anyone and everyone.Ops managers have no knowledge / skill they use all their spies to watch everything you do unless your willing to say no problem to everything they want they shun you and make working their very difficult way to much political redirect very stressful and too much favoritism.

    Advice to Management

    You need to put people with knowledge in manager positions not a bunch of people who only listen to suck ups who don't have much skill and poor work ethic.
